Basic Principles of MongoDB Backup and Restore

Realizing MongoDB backup collection or database content is an internal method that you can implement using command-line MongoDB backup tools. This approach requires some special knowledge as well as skills, especially for scheduling. Handy Backup provides a viable alternative here!


Using a Unified Plug-in

You can backup MongoDB copy database just as any other database with a generic “Database” feature. All you need is to set up and register an ODBC driver for MongoDB (an external feature used by Windows in many other utilities) to work with the “Database” tool.


Automating MongoDB Backup and Restore

After the initial task creation, Handy Backup will perform all operations for MongoDB backup automatically, according to a scheduling sequence you set up for a task. This way you can realize auto MongoDB incremental or differential backup, compress MongoDB backup collection, and so on.

In addition to the advantages described above, Handy Backup provides a bunch of useful features making MongoDB backup just one parts of any of crucial backup strategy you can plan. Here is a brief list for some of these features.

  • Wide choice of backup storages. Save MongoDB backup to S3 cloud from Amazon, to OneDrive or Google Drive accounts, to FTP, SFTP or FTPS storage, to your private cloud using WebDAV, or just save it to some local or external disk for making a copy.
A Variety of Backup Storages
  • Native format of data backup. Handy Backup stores your MongoDB tables in their native formats (unless you compress or encrypt these data). Therefore, you can create a replication of your database just by taking a MongoDB backup, or use backup data directly in MongoDB.
